Ilminster Entertainments Society (IES) was formed in 1947. The society presents six productions a year plus a very popular Christmas show and Youth production.
In 1987, IES purchased a former fruit warehouse and developed it into The Warehouse Theatre, which is run entirely by volunteers from IES. The Warehouse Theatre is one of the best equipped, professional-standard amateur theatres in the county of Somerset and with productions from IES, as well as from elsewhere, it offers local people high quality theatre and musical entertainment for the enjoyment of all ages. The Warehouse Theatre has a fully licensed bar, coffee lounge, and T-loop system.

The Taunton Thespians have been providing live theatre for and by the people of Taunton and surrounding area since 1927. The Thespians' home is The Place in Wilfred Road, Taunton, Somerset, England. Every year the Thespians entertain thousands of people by:
Staging two major main-house productions, for many years at the Brewhouse Theatre, but from November 2009 at the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre
Participating in drama festivals in other theatres around Somerset
Putting on in-house productions for members
Spending two weeks on the road with a touring production every summer
The Players present one production each year, at the start of Advent. Since 1952 the plays have always been taken from the Medieval Mystery Cycles, selected and edited to make a performance lasting one-and-a-half hours, with about sixty speaking roles shared between twenty to thirty actors. Performances take place twice nightly from Monday to Friday in the first week of December, with rehearsals commencing in October.
In 1946 the group was founded in the City of London, in St Peter-upon-Cornhill Church, and the venue has always been a church close to the centre of the city - the current base is in Shadwell, just east of Tower Bridge. Although the Players are church-based it is not a purely religious group and members mainly belong because the plays are an interesting insight into fifteenth century drama and are produced to a high standard.
We are a friendly crowd and we welcome new members of any age or level of experience, whether they want to be performers, backstage crew, costumiers, front-of-house or anything else connected with the productions!
We are a friendly musical theatre company based in Winchmore Hill London N21 in the London Borough of Enfield. We perform two musicals per year at the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar in Hertfordshire. Full details of our activities can be found on our website www.elods.org.uk or find us on facebook and twitter. If you are interested in joining, telephone our chairman Mark Shaw on 07711 316 474.
The Leeds Civic Arts Guild is the 'umbrella' association of 14 amateur drama, music, opera youth theatre and other voluntary arts societies. These groups provide a wide range of theatrical and artistic ranging from Shakespeare to stage adaptations of TV classics, and as a Guild produce approximately 20 productions a year, at the Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds, as well as other venues such as Morley Town Hall or the Ilkley Playhouse.
Every member of every society is a member of the Guild, benefitting from the subsidy given to the groups by Leeds City Council, and although each society is an autonomous body, with their own committees, constitutions and accounts, they go through the main Guild Executive in dealing with Leeds City Council and the Carriageworks Theatre, with the Guild acting as the main point of contact.
Member groups are:
Leeds Amateur Operatic Society
Leeds Arts Centre
Leeds Art Theatre
Leeds Children’s Theatre
Leeds Gilbert & Sullivan Society
Leeds Writers Circle
Leeds Youth Opera
Morley Amateur Operatic Society
Shatterproof Theatre Company
St. Mary's Youth Theatre
West Riding Opera

Lane Theatre is owned and managed by Newquay Dramatic Society.
Newquay Amateur Dramatic Society was founded in May 1931 and we have been presenting plays continually since that date. Facilities include a 138 seat auditorium, free parking and disabled access.
In 1980 the Society acquired the Lane Village Hall and then began the process of transforming an almost derelict building into the excellent 138 seat facility we enjoy today.
In 1999 we secured a substantial Arts Council (National Lottery) grant which enabled us to carry out major improvements for the comfort of both our audiences and actors. The refurbished building was opened by Phillip Schofield on 3rd September 2000
Founded in 1924, Ruislip Dramatic Society has become known for its performance of a huge variety of dramatic works to a very high standard. From Restoration comedies to modern-day farces the group has performed regularly in a range of venues over nearly 90 years.
